Hip Hop Jewelry News: Young Money Star’s Chain Gets Swiped

January 18, 2011 at 7:35 pm

Gudda Gudda from Lil Wayne’s Young Money label reportedly had his YM dog tag diamond chain snatched at a club in Minnesota at the weekend. Gudda – in the Midwest State for a performance – was rocking a very simple piece, but one that had a lot of diamonds.

The brazen offender dived on stage and snatched it right off Gudda’s neck. But this is where the story gets good: Gudda pursued him and managed to catch him and rain down a few blows on the guy before security got to him and it was game over for the sorry con.

These hip hop jewelry thefts seem to be reaching epidemic levels, with California rapper The Game being the victim of a $75,000 jewelry heist on Christmas Eve.

When you have something so sought after such as diamond jewelry it’s going to get a lot of attention, which can be a mixed blessing. But we’re pretty sure that the pros of wearing a sick piece of iced out jewelry far outweigh the cons.
